Now that gas is less expensive than before try using two tanks full of Super High Octane. 91/93, etc. The highest you can find. Also on the first tank of gas use 3 cans of Techron, and on the Second two. If this works for you, try using reg gas like Chevron, Mobil, Exxon, Shell etc. Try not to use the cheaper blends. I bought gas for 1.46 but I used a can of Techron.--Someone suggested that it had to do with the Ethanol that they put on the gas now days.So I usually place Ethanol free gas (gas for lawn mowers) in the tank when ever I can. Please let me know what works for you..
